Pearson's Crystal Data: Sales Point

You can purchase a license for Pearson's Crystal Data in our online store. Please click on the prices below to go directly to the corresponding product page in the store.

As an alternative, you can use the order forms that are available from the bottom of this page.

Several license types are available in two different models: permanent and one-year limited licenses. The one-year license model offers a low-price entry point to Pearson's Crystal Data.


Prices for one-year licenses

The following license types are limited to one year:

License type Price
Single license for personal academic usage, valid for 1 year (*) 530 EUR
Site license for an academic institute/departement, valid for 1 year (*) 1,050 EUR
Single license (1 installation) for a company or research institute, valid for 1 year 2,200 EUR
Small group license (2-4 installations) for a company or research institute, valid for 1 year 3,400 EUR
Site license (5 or more installations) for a company or research institute, valid for 1 year 4,000 EUR

  • The academic one-year licenses (*) are only available by electronic delivery.
  • The "academic" one-year license types and the reduced prices ("Degree-granting org.") for permanent license types are only available for institutions that grant an academic degree (e.g. B.S., M.S., Ph.D.).
  • The �Single license for personal academic usage� can only be installed on a single PC, while the �Site license for an academic institute/department" can be installed on an unlimited number of PCs within a group, institute or department.

Similar to competing products, the limitation to one year means that after one year usage the database software will refuse to work, and you have to purchase a new license, if you would like to continue using the database. Please note that this is no subscription and thus no cancellation from your side is necessary and there is no automatic, unwanted renewal.


Prices for permanent licenses

A permanent license of Pearson's Crystal Data (front-end software and database) is purchased only once with unlimited usage time. Periodic updates become available every year; they can be purchased optionally.

License type Normal price Degree-granting org.
New license for 1-5 installations, unlimited usage time 4,900 EUR 3,900 EUR
New license for 6-10 installations, unlimited usage time 7,300 EUR 5,700 EUR
New license for more than 10 installations, unlimited usage time   on request Price on request


Prices for optional updates of permanent licenses

For each release year difference required to update your version to the current, 25% of the price for a new license will be due. For example, if you would like to update your 1-5 installations license (price for a new license: 4900 EUR) of release 2020/21 to the current release 2022/23, there is a difference of two years (i.e. annual releases), so the price is 2 * 25% * 4900 EUR = 2450 EUR.


  • The prices listed above exclude VAT (value added tax) which may be due.
  • Customers from within the European community (except Germany) should provide their VAT registration number. Without VAT number we have to add 19 percent value added tax (VAT).
  • All prices are subject to periodic revision (currently valid until April 30, 2023).
